About the Book
Providing a comprehensive explanation on these critical situations, Connivance by Silence addresses the destructive ideology that provokes terrorist attacks around the world. These seeds of hatred that culminated in the September 11, 2001 attacks were sown in Muslim societies decades ago. The Muslims’ silence inadvertently helped nurture these seeds to their deadly fruition. The Arab hijackers, who called themselves Muslims and killed innocent people in the name of Islam, have left a black mark on the second largest religion in the world. The subsequent decade of destruction that followed against the Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan shows the enormity of this monster that is fueled by misrepresented interpretations of Islam.
Moreover, Connivance by Silence also emphasizes the radicalism among Muslims in the US that has become extremely alarming. The ideology promoting criminal acts, under the guise of Islam, was thoroughly investigated in Pakistan by a government appointed high–powered commission headed by the chief justice. This commission meticulously examined the doctrines and found them to be flawed and contrary to the Qur’an, the Muslim scripture.
As Connivance by Silence identifies the sources and explains the causes of misrepresented Islamic teachings that terrorists exploit to justify violence, it provides knowledge and awareness to empower average Muslims to forcefully reject these twisted interpretations and remove the Islamic guise off the terrorists’ justifications and expose the criminals. Through this revealing book, readers will realize how these misinterpreted ideologies evolved and understand their inherent contradictions and give them the power to question the religious rationale of such flawed ideologies.
